Read Across America

Each year toward the beginning of March, we celebrate with others the ability to read. This special week was established by the National Education Association (NEA) in 1998 to help get kids excited about reading. This week is celebrated each year around the birthday of beloved children’s book author Dr. Seuss, so a perfect way to celebrate is to don a Seussian hat and read one his famous tales, like One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. On National Read Across America, students, teachers, parents, and community members around the nation come together to read books and celebrate the joy of reading.  Students at THS join in by serving as readers at one or both of our elementary schools.
